Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” Now Online: 1999 — Present

dailyshowlogo3.jpgLis­ten close­ly. What’s that you hear? It’s the sound of Amer­i­can office pro­duc­tiv­i­ty tak­ing it on the chin.

Yes­ter­day, “The Dai­ly Show with Jon Stew­art” put its entire video archive online (see The archive goes back eight years. It’s com­plete­ly free. And it’s all high­ly search­able. To get a feel for what this video trove offers, you can spend some time watch­ing these clas­sic Dai­ly Show moments.

As you’d expect, the video archive includes no short­age of fun­ny bits, includ­ing when Stephen Col­bert announced his pres­i­den­tial bid ear­li­er this week (see below), and when the show riffed on Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize last week. But, mixed in, you’ll also find some of the show’s more seri­ous moments. Take, for exam­ple, when Jon Stew­art asked John McCain the hard-nosed ques­tions about the Iraq war (here and here) that most jour­nal­ists won’t, and also when the show first returned to broad­cast­ing after 9–11. It’s all here. And appar­ent­ly a sim­i­lar site for The Col­bert Report will be launched some­where down the line.
